Kenya Boston ’18 has committed to play lacrosse at Yale University next year — congratulations, Kenya! The Yale Bulldogs play at the NCAA Division I level as part of the Ivy League conference.
A four-year Varsity Lacrosse player at Park, Kenya was quickly recognized as a talented and committed member of the team. “As a freshman, she displayed ambidextrous skills, speed, and composure,” says Robin Lowe ’84, Director of Athletics for the Girls’ Program and Kenya’s Varsity Lacrosse coach. “She immediately became a ‘go-to player’ and propelled our team forward. Over her career, she has continued to grow her game and leadership skills. And now we hope she will end her career with a Championship Season!”
Interested in the combination of the high level of academics and athletics at Yale, Kenya knew after her first visit that she wanted to attend the school. “I loved the environment of New Haven and the campus, and I got great vibes from the team and coaching staff,” Kenya said. “I’m excited to get to know my teammates and the campus, and to choose classes that will eventually help me find my major and career path. Overall, I’m looking forward to playing lacrosse while also getting an excellent education.”
Kenya believes Park has helped prepare her to be a student-athlete in a Division I program next year. “Along with offering the same type of academic rigor as Yale, Park offers the opportunity to play on a competitive varsity team that requires immense dedication. And I love the team camaraderie that the Park athletic program seems to obtain regardless of sport and season. Because of that, everyday of lacrosse season I look forward to, and enjoy, going to practice and playing with my teammates. I hope to carry that feeling with me in college.”
Good luck at Yale, Kenya!Back to The Latest
